Kool Keith, Sex Style
1996 | Label: Threshold Recordings, LLC / The Orchard

There's weird and then there's Kool Keith weird.

No one represents the ideal of the relentlessly idiosyncratic MC better than cult hero Kool Keith. Since his days in polysyllabic, science-addled late-'80s crew Ultramagnetic MCs, Keith has built his reputation on being a deranged chameleon, changing costumes, concepts, personae and monikers with practically every album (he's been sex-crazed space surgeon Dr. Octagon, cannibalistic psychopath Dr. Dooom and futuristic funkster Black Elvis, among others). On his… read more »

Porno Rap

stglaw

My God, the lyrics on this album would even embarrass dumbasses like 2 Live Crew. Kool Keith raps about women having sex with dogs, urinating in women's hair, masturbating in public, and all other kinds of kinky sex. Though this has been done by so many others, Keith really pushes the envelope. Not exactly my thing when I listen to rap, but Keith's rhymes are a step above the others, even in this context. Luckily, not every song is about getting laid, which gets boring. My only complaint is that, compared to his Dr. Octagon and Dr. Dooom stuff (except of course for the lyrics), this is pretty mainstream stuff, musically. His phrasing isn't as interesting as on his other albums either. Although I got tired of this album after about 8 songs (you can only listen to so many songs about jacking off and pulling off women's panties), and it's not his absolute best stuff, it is a still a very good album and an important one to have in your collection if you're a Kool Keith fan.

MASTERPIECE

Hands down, one of Keith's best releases. Ever. If you are a Keith fan and don't own this, you are probably NOT a Keith fan. Download immediately.

The Outer Limits: Kool Keith and the Ultramagnetic MCs

By Hua Hsu, Contributor

It was 1988 and space was, indeed, the final frontier. A brief history of rap until that moment might have read like this: first they toasted, then they shouted. Next came the couplets and syllables, uttered coolly, so as not to break a sweat. And then crash-landed the Ultramagnetic MCs - a band of brothers from another planet who came to reset the system. Why rhyme when you could fly in style? High school friends Kool… more »

They Say All Music Guide

The first solo album released under Kool Keith’s own name, Sex Style expands the dirtier parts of Dr. Octagonecologyst into a near-concept album. Sometimes a pimp, sometimes a pervert, Keith dubs his new approach “pornocore,” cribbing dialogue from sex flicks to support astoundingly explicit raps that go places 2 Live Crew never had the capacity to imagine. Not only that, but when Keith turns his attention to inferior MCs, his disses are usually couched in elaborate sexual metaphors (a striking number of which involve water sports). Some songs do deviate from the theme, or at least tone it down a little, and while a few serve as a welcome respite, others simply don’t have as much personality. The over the top raunch is Keith’s main focus, and that’s where the vast majority of the album’s most imaginative rhymes come from. That makes Sex Style a polarizing entry in Keith’s catalog. Musically, it’s one of his most consistent solo outings, especially if you’re just looking at the ones under his own name. It definitely benefits from production by KutMasta Kurt, who may not be as wildly inventive as Dan the Automator, but knows how to frame Keith’s idiosyncratic flow with deep, funky beats. Thus, the album is borderline necessary for Keith fans; it really depends on your tolerance for the extremity of songs like “Sex Style,” “Don’t Crush It,” “Make Up Your Mind,” “Regular Girl,” “Little Girls,” or “Lovely Lady.” But it is a chance to hear one of the freakiest rappers of all time at his freakiest. – Steve Huey
